Deus Ex Machina
What makes a bike aesthetically pleasing is very much subjective. In this short film called Deus Ex Machina (not related to the motorcycle brand of the same name), the subject Jack is very open and honest about what his philosophies are in everything from design to the processes involved.
He shares his backyard workshop as he creates a somewhat "Incredible Mess" of a motorcycle. Jack mentions the satisfaction of creating something with your own hands and the learning process involved. As well as the tranquil state of mind that occurs when you step inside the workshop, and watch the hours fly by.
I definitely learnt something from this video, especially taking a step back when nothing goes to plan.
